Hey there everyone, DeepRising here with the Weekly News Letter. There was a great response to last week's topic "Submarines". Well done to everybody who entered. Here are the winning Flipnotes.
Our first selection this week, by CyberLarva, features a submarine rising to the surface. The slightly snaking movement path of the submarine, and some air bubbles, creates a very convincing under-water effect.
A Japanese submarine is spotted, but no one will believe it, in this MV by Kêithkash★. The lyrical timing works great with the music, and the design and animation are very nicely done indeed.
An inquisitive stick man makes the mistake of activating the 'BLEH CO. Submarine-summoner', in this hilarious Flipnote by YeastFeast. We really loved the Warner bros. Road Runner style inspiration here, and the voice acting dialogue is brilliantly done.
In this entry, Kaden is saved by his friend Mr Mask, in a submarine torpedo battle. The interior sub shots play nicely with the under-water wide shots, in this dynamic action sequence by ☆ KⒶden ☆.
This relaxing under-water adventure entitled 'Glub Glub', by MEOW features a cat enjoying a fun trip in a submarine. The shading of the water, drawing style and animation are beautifully done.
In this delightful entry, by Hedgehog98, an inflatable submarine is deployed for a fun sea voyage. What a great idea! It looks so compact, you could take it anywhere. Got to get me one of those, for the next time I'm at the beach!
A submarine's periscope is put to good use, in this Flipnote by ヤrincessme. We loved seeing the eye of the watcher reflected in the periscope, and the watery bubbling sound track adds very nicely to the nautical feel.
Never sleep when piloting a submarine! This directive is illustrated perfectly in our next entry by Sansdaguy. It's a nicely structured story, and we really enjoyed the comedy and characters too.
A mermaid peeks into a submarine, but when the captain looks around, she's gone! Elusive and mysterious, mermaids are always hard to spot, as we see in this Flipnote by kei..
A cave exploring mini sub comes to a sticky end, in this entry by Nova. The design and animation are first class, and Linda the monster fish had us leaping out of our seats in terror :O. Cool beans!
This week's topic is Swamps. A swamp is marshy forest wetland, that often occurs along large rivers, such as the Amazon, the Mississippi and the Congo. Swamps are teeming with wildlife, such as alligators, crocodiles, snakes, frogs, toads, and turtles, and also birds and insects, such as the long legged crane, and the dragonfly.
Swamps often feature in the movies, for example the classic monster movie 'Swamp Thing' and the impressive swamp locations from films such as 'Southern Comfort'.
For me, swamps have a certain eery quietness and mystery to them, but are also quite beautiful too.
